Embargo Information

Reference to IOF competition rule 26.5, the areas indicated on the location map below, are embargoed.

This embargo applies to all potential WOC 2015 team members (runners, team leaders, coaches, doctors, etc.) as well as to all others with strong links to elite squads.

Spelt out in detail, this means that for such people:

  • No organised orienteering of any kind may take place in the embargoed areas until after WOC 2015
  • No training sessions, i.e. running/races, testing route choices etc. are allowed in these areas
  • No-one with potential connections to a team (athlete or any other function) may visit the embargoed terrain
  • In the towns of Inverness, Elgin, Nairn and Forres, access is permitted in the embargoed areas until further notice. however use of orienteering maps, running training of all kinds and route-choice testing is not allowed in these areas.
    Note the removal of the word orienteering, this now applies to any maps.
